The largest town in the Mid-Suffolk district, Stowmarket is a charming market town whose history goes back nearly a thousand years. First mentioned in the Domesday Book in 1086, Stowmarket’s medieval past is still on show today, with over 130 buildings listed by the Department of National Heritage as buildings of ‘special architectural or historic interest’.
Sticking with this historical theme, one of Stowmarket’s biggest attractions is the Museum of East Anglian Life, where you can do all kinds of activities, from learning the history of East Anglia to doing yoga or enjoying coffee and cake at their café.
Not to say that Stowmarket is a place stuck in the past. Indeed, with two supermarkets, a range of restaurants and the fantastic John Peel Creative Centre – perfect for discovering upcoming artists – within easy reach, Stowmarket is an altogether modern place to live. Oh, and those who enjoy a drink in a warm and welcoming pub are spoilt for choice, with The Royal William and Magpie Inn vying for your custom.
Stowmarket’s range of schools makes it an ideal place for families, too. The Abbots Hall Community Primary School is highly regarded, while older pupils are catered for at Stowmarket High School, just a 13-minute walk from Mill Grove.
Located close to the A14, Stowmarket is roughly equidistant between Bury St Edmunds and Ipswich, being just a 25-minute drive from both. Whilst the Stowmarket train station, just 1.5 miles from Mill Grove, puts you just 90 minutes from London Liverpool Street, 35 minutes from Norwich and 1 hour 10 minutes from Cambridge.
